JGarden Description:The Carter Presidential Center is a 37 acre retreat located just two miles from downtown. The Japanese garden was a gift from Yoshida Tadao, founder and president of Yoshida Kogyo KK (YKK) as an expression of his long personal friendship with President Carter.

The garden imitates a landscape of deep mountains and secluded valleys. The two waterfalls that are at the core of the design represent the president and his wife. The two stone lanterns placed in the heart of the garden symbolize the hope implict in the Carter Center. 




Recall the vistas of various famous places, select what attracts you and add your own interpretation. It is best to use this as a theme to design the whole of the garden while adding just the right amount of changes.
